Highway Of Holiness

 

"A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it." Isaiah 35:8

We are really grateful that God has guided and blessed us through year 2014. While we are approaching the year's end, we are contemplating on what the Lord has done with us throughout the year and how He wants us to grow in the upcoming year.

King Solomon said that a wise man would hear and increase in learning, and a man of understanding would acquire wise counsel. Pro 1:5. As God's people, we need to be aware of the season we've been living. We shouldn't be indifferent with what has been going on in the world. The Bible says that we need to realize that in the last days, difficult times would come. People will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. 2Ti 3:1-4.

Despite of the world which is passing away (1Jo 1:17), we need to take heed of what the Lord has been speaking to us. Christ Himself prays for us, "I do not ask You to take them out of the world, but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth." John 17:15-17. This pathway of sanctification is also known as 'Highway of Holiness'. God the Father wants us to be sanctified from the world. He wants us to be sanctified to Him.

If we keep persevering in this Highway of Holiness and overcome the evil one, He would be our God and we would be His people. Rev 21:7.
